In the Republic of Macedonia, the Public Administration Reform Strategy 2018 – 2022 was adopted, and it
defines measures that are to be taken in that period, in order to achieve the goals and objectives defined in each
of the priority areas.
In the priority area Policy-making and Coordination, measures are taken to enhance the mid -term and sectoral
planning by strengthening the institutional and human capacities for coordination of the mid-term planning
process and connectivity with the sectored strategies, budgeting and annual planning. In order to effectively
support the Government in decision-making, the structure and administrative capacities for carrying out
functions of the so-called “Centre of Government” will be enhanced, especially with regard to the quality and
consistency of the content of policies and draft laws through innovative manners for efficient inclusion of
stakeholders in all phases of the process of policy planning and development.
Priority measures in the field of Public Service and Human Resource Management are aimed at depoliticizing
the administration, professionalization of senior management structures through clear distinction between the
political and professional levels, as well as through introduction of a senior civil service category, by defining
and regulating transparent and competitive merit-based procedures.
To achieve the defined goals in the priority area Responsibility, Accountability and Transparency, measures are
be taken to reorganize and optimize state administration bodies, agencies and inspection services of the central
government, in order to provide structures with clear accountability and without any overlapping competences
that will contribute to efficiency in operation, clearly allocated responsibilities, coordination, management, and
quality service delivery. In the priority area Delivery of Services and informational computer technology
support to administration, means that Service delivery should be in a Fast, Simple and Accessible Manner,
measures and activities are taken for rational development of the digital environment, improvement of quality
and access to public services, provision of digital environment with access to and possibility for using eservices. One of the main characteristics and goals of some of the activities is active inclusion of users in the
process of defining and designing services, thereby ensuring that the services will be adjusted to users’ needs.
For achieving, monitoring of goals anticipated under the Public administration reform strategy 2018 - 2022, and
for coordinating of the overall process at different levels s uch as: political level, expert and technical support
level, and for implementation and monitoring of a process, different organs and bodies are formed for this goal,

Administration Reform Team.
